He was born in Cameroon, where music is more than an institution. As a young boy, he often skip school and went to the famous club œLe Madison to listen and watch the drum guy play. Growing up, he developed more skills to the point of being noticed by local great musicians who will give him the opportunity to travel and perform on many great stages in Africa and abroad. Wishing to improve himself even more, he decided at age of 22 to fly to France and integrate Christian Bourdons Akanga Music School, this was best decision ever since he started to work with internationally known artists as Manu Dibango, Stevie Wonder, Salif Keita, Valarie Ekouma¨, Maceo Parker, Pee Wee Ellis, Papa Wemba, Tony Allen and Asha.
